selfie, eye contact 

Thanks to the pandemic, I’m something like six weeks overdue for a haircut. So now I look like it’s 1994 and I’m on my way to a Collective Soul concert.

So let me get this straight, GitHub. If my window is too narrow I'm not allowed to access my settings?

Finally found some time to work on the website redesign I started about a year ago. Wish I had more time to work on this. It's a bit embarrassing how long this is taking.

Spent (read: wasted) the morning working on my desktop config. Got a Polybar config I'm mostly happy with, set up themes for Firefox and GTK using the Nord color palette.

food, celebrity birthday 

In honor of Beethoven’s birthday, I made some (vegan) mac’n’cheese.

So this year was the first year out of the past five that They Might Be Giants wasn't my top artist (they were number 2).

Got my copy of the new Parks book from standardsmanual.com/ yesterday. The US National Parks Service has had such beautiful photography and graphic design throughout its history. And it’s such a treat to see pamphlets from the parks in my home state of Colorado. There’s one cover for a Mesa Verde pamphlet from 1916!

This is definitely giving the EPA style guide a run for its money as my favorite Standards Manual.

Sure, Oregon has goat yoga, but here on the front range we’ve got horse qigong!

Although this article is mainly about the next release of , the paragraph I found most troubling was buried almost at the end.

I've been saying for a while now that only cares about your insofar as they can convince you to buy their phone over a Nexus or Samsung phone. As soon as they think it's more profitable to sell you as a product, they will do it without hesitation. It seems like we are reaching that point.

Before and after of my .

I just finished putting on all the new components I’d ordered so I can ride again this week (didn’t get to ride at all last week). Pretty happy with the way this turned out. Still need to true the wheels and I think I need to take a look at the rear derailleur.

If you don’t hear from me tomorrow, I may have wrecked due to screwing something up with the brakes or pedals. 😅

Bikes 

Ooh! My new bike saddle has made it to the United States!

Alright, Mastodon, maybe you can help me out here. I'm trying to figure out how to create a layout for a web page where I have a figure floated right, the right edge of the first paragraph of text overlaps the figure a bit, but then all subsequent paragraphs wrap around the figure (see attached screenshot). I have been banging my head against this for a few days and am ready to concede that it's beyond my skill or perhaps impossible. Any ideas?

Capitalist propaganda fashion 

My sister-in-law got this sweatshirt from uniqlo, which my mother-in-law was offering to my wife. So we unfolded it and had a good laugh at the “wisdom” offered up by Merchant & Mills. 😂
